Elliot Park group to take 'low-risk' offenders

Elliot Park's Minnesota Teen Challenge is applying for a halfway house license to start a program for chemically dependent convicts diverted from the state's prison work-release program.

The faith-based residential drug treatment center at 1619 Portland Ave. S. would house "low-risk" drug offenders, said Rich Scherber, the center's executive director, at a July 12 Elliot Park Neighborhood, Inc. (EPNI) board meeting.

The Elliot Park facility currently has 140 beds for men and teenage boys.
